Power Question

Hi, 

I tried searching but didn't find an answer to my question. I have a S1 pro and i just use it at home connected for my kids to use Karaoke and also have my TV audio connected as well. My question is can i leave it plugged in and powered on? Aside from battery (assuming i take it out) is there any issues in keeping the s1 pro powered on at all times? I use it moderately and can turn it off but since I don't have a remote for it, i'm just wondering if i forget to turn it off or just leave it on, will it damage the speaker?

Sorry if this is a newbie question. But i'm a newbie at this

I use the S1 pro for professional reasons but have found it to be a very useful portable Bluetooth speaker around the house. Would also be interested to know the answer to the above question... and how easy it is to replace the battery when necessary 

'Are there any issues in keeping the s1 pro powered on at all times?'

You mean other than ordering up some more (most likely) coal to be burned up at a power plant somewhere?  ;-)

The battery is VERY easy to replace.  AFAIK, Lithium batteries begin to degrade on the day they're manufactured and that over time will store less of a charge and therefore not power the unit as long as when they're "new" - whether you use the device or not. 

I doubt that the speaker would be injured by leaving it plugged in and turned on.

I've forgotten to turn off my S1s a couple times after practice.  When I came back a couple days later I found the blue light blinking.  I assumed they'd powered off automatically - so I turned them off and on again and they were ready to go!

LOL. Yes aside from the power consumption, and the battery, i just know i'll forget to turn off the power sometimes and wondered if anyone knows if this is especially bad for the speaker. That's interesting what you said. That the blue light was blinking after you left. Does it go into a power save mode? I guess that means you had to physically hit the switch to turn them on again?

I'm not sure if it had powered itself off/went into power saving mode - I hope it did, I just assumed it had and used the power switch to turn them off then on again before checking if they were on or not.

I'd say that it doesn't harm the speaker at all and even though they were physically a little warm, probably didn't hurt the electronics either.

But maybe one of our friends from Bose will weigh in...

Yes.

Aside from battery (assuming i take it out)

See: S1 Pro Battery Installation

You can remove it under a minute, two tops.

You can leave it plugged in and powered on all the time.  We could spend a lot of time talking about ways to optimize the battery lifespan, but the basics are: The S1 Pro was built to be used (with or without the battery).  The S1 Pro two-year warranty covers the battery. And replacement batteries are readily available and user-replaceable.

I use it that way too.

Does that help?
